  • VW Corrado fuel issue

    Hi, anyone know much about corrado's? Son is looking at one and there is a possible fuel problem at WOT where the car stutters, possibly from fuel starvation or a related symptom. Apparently its fine in normal driving and the car had a new pump about 9mths ago but seems to be a recurrent issue. Its a 1990 1.8 16v...

    I believe this is the same engine as Mk2 Golf 16v which I had back in the day. It could be a number of things as these have a bit of a reputation as they age. I would replace the fuel filter as first port of call. Then you have lift pump to check plus a few other things. Best pop over to the Gti forum for more info

      A good set up with Co and timing will most likely sort it. I never see any of these anymore..

        It’s a KR lump, I’d argue 90 percent of running issues with these are down to weak mix and ignition timing being out. 30 mins with someone who knows what they are doing a gas tester and a strobe and you’ll be good. Also really worth checking the toothed crank pulley , they had a habit of cracking and throwing timing all over the shop.

          Mokey's covered just about everything, they do suffer from crack bottom pulley's, think it's the same crappy part as found on I5's though not 100% sure on this. Do check the cambelt timing along with his other suggestions.

            Oh and only strobe it in the flywheel the vibration damper is not a reliable datum.
